CENTER VALLEY, Pa. — More than 60 male students, faculty, staff and alumni participated in the fourth annual “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” march on April 16 at Penn State Lehigh Valley. The march was an opportunity for men to come together to raise awareness of, and peacefully protest against sexual violence. The event was open to the public and all who participated were given a free t-shirt and the option to donate to the Valley Against Sex Trafficking (VAST).
“This issue is prevalent in society today, including in our own community. It’s important that we all become aware and educated on how we can help,” said Pam Fleck, assistant director of student affairs at Penn State Lehigh Valley. “For the fifth year in a row, our entire campus community has come together to support the purpose of our RISE club and the mission of the Walk a Mile event.”
